this is not strictly a bug, but I believe that it would
help the driver.
For good reasons, many organisations prefer to use
release snapshots of code, and distro packagers
(notably redhat) don't have the inclination/resources
to roll-up intermediate snapshots.
the last release of this driver is getting on a bit now
and the code has improved much since.
So, how about a new release to get the code out to a
whole new set of users ;-)
